WILLIAM BATY (also Beatty or Baity) was born about 1770-75, perhaps in Virginia.


His father may have been Patrick Beatty -

When William Beatty/Baty m. Margaret Hazel in 1793 in Mercer County, KY, witnesses were Patrick Beatty and James & Mary (Beatty) McKenney. Mary was daug of Patrick.


He probably had two brothers:

    1. George Baty (born abt 1773-78; m April 7, 1802, Livingston Co., KY to Isabel Farsythe)

    2. David Baty (born abt 1779-85; in 1801 he was age 16-20 and living in Livingston Co., KY. He m Neoma ?  He died 1870-80 in McLennon Co, TX).


William married June 8, 1793 in Mercer Co, KY to Margaret Hazel (b 1769, Ky or Va; d Nov 1859/60, Thomasville, Oregon Co, Mo). [Their marriage is listed in both Washington Co. and Mercer Co., Ky]


William was living on Claylick Watercourse in Livingston Co. 1790 to abt 1820

Livingston Co., KY.  Tax List - 1801:

     George Baty, over 21

     David Baty, age 16-20

     William Baty, over 21

Livingston Co., KY.  Tax list 1802:

     George Batty, over 21, one horse, 1 black over 16, total blacks-2

     William Batty, over 21, one horse. 150 acres on Claylick watercourse.


1815:  Benjamin Coffield estate sale; Daniel Hazle, William Batey, among the buyers.  (Source:  "Livingston County, KY Estate Records, 1799-1842", County Clerk Papers, Box 4)


1818 - William’s first son Daniel H. Baty married in Gallatin Co, KY to Nancy McKenney (William’s sister? Mary also married a McKenney). In 1820 he may have been the “Danl Beatty” living in Livingston Co, KY with one daug. 0-10. In 1830 they were in Montgomery Co, IN. In 1840 & 1850 they were in Boone Co, IN. In 1860 they were in Putnam Co, MO. In 1880 he was in Phelps Co, MO. living with his nephew, Carl (son of Wm. Samuel Baty).


Margaret was 50 years old in 1819 when William Daniel was born. She already had a son named Daniel H. (b 1795) and a son named William Samuel (b 1816). Maybe they just repeated names (or maybe Wm. Daniel is a grandson?)

In 1820 Grayson Co., Ky. there was a William Baty (31--1-/321-1-2) & a Joseph Baty.


By 1823 the family had moved to Pope Co., IL where some of the children married (Mary in 1823, George in 1823, Margaret in 1825). William died about 1821-23 in Ky or IL. Margaret was listed in Pope Co, IL as a widow in 1825.  The Hazel family must have moved to Illinois with them because their son George Baty married Melinda Hazel (maybe a cousin) in Pope Co IL in 1823.


In 1830 there was a George W. Batey in Pope Co, Ill (b 1810) [maybe this was their son] He doesn't appear there in 1840.

These are the Pope Co, IL marriages of Batys:

Mary Baity m John Huddleston, June 21, 1823  (daug of Wm. & Marg)

George W. Baty m Melinda Hazle, Aug 11, 1823  (son of Wm. & Marg)

Margaret Beaty m Thomas Jones, Apr 12, 1825  (daug of Wm. & Marg)

These Pope Co marriages may have been relatives, but not sure how:

Nancy P. Baity m Henry L. Dixon, Oct 21, 1841

Caroline M. Beaty m William Dixon, Oct 14, 1842

Roda Emaline Beaty m Newton M. Turner, July 19, 1846

William Baity m Araminto Aron, Mar 1, 1848

Clarsia E. Baity m Stephen M. Medley, Nov 23, 1848

Indiana Beaty m Joseph Modglin, Oct 10, 1850

Malinda Baity m James Modglin, Nov 17, 1850

There were several more Baty (Baity/Beaty) marriages in that county after 1850. There also were several Hazel marriages after 1830.


Margaret moved to Oregon Co., MO with her children by 1826. Not sure if all of her children moved to Oregon Co, Mo. For sure 3 of her 4 daughters did: Malinda Huddleston, Polly Huddleston and Matilda Dexter, and 2 sons, William Samuel & William Daniel.  There were other Baty & Hazel marriages in Pope Co, IL after their move, so they probably left relatives there.

BATY, William S. & Mahaly McCAMMON - married 23 Sep 1838 (Ripley Co, before Oregon Co estab)  (son of Wm. & Marg)

BATY, Wm. Daniel & Avaline MAULDING - 8 Sep 1842 (Ripley Co, before Oregon Co estab)  (prob son of Wm. & Marg)

BATY, W. R. & Jane WILLARD - 3 May 1894 (William Riley, son of Sam G & Brittina)


In 1850 Margaret was living with her daughter, Matilda Dexter in Oregon Co., MO. 

Margaret was 90 years old when she died near Thomasville. She was listed on the 1860 Mortality Schedule of Oregon Co, Mo: "90 years old, born Kentucky, died Nov." [If this list was taken in the summer, then she died Nov, 1859.]

Can anyone help identify this group picture of Batys?

It must be William Samuel’s or William Daniel’s family. I’m guessing that it is William Samuel’s family. 

The old woman on the front row could be Wm Sam’s wife Mahala.  

There are 3 men on the back row who need to be identified.

The old man on the back left could be Samuel G. Baty (b 1842)

The young man 3rd from left could be Riley Baty (b1869) and wife Lilla.

If this picture was taken right before 1897, then Riley doesn’t have any kids yet.

I wonder if the man 2nd from left is George W. Baty (b1844), also if the woman in the

front row with the dark dress could be Paulina Judd Baty, wife of George W.

But I’m not really sure that George W. is the son of Wm Sam. but he named his first

girl Mahala.

Wm. Sam. also had a son name George Newell 2 years younger than George W.

Maybe the 2nd man in the back is Carrol “Carl” Baty.
